Nautical Knots Shadow Boxes

Now that I'm moving to the beach, I'm looking to incorporate more Nautical Decor into my home.  I love the look of these Nautical Knot accents:

A while back my Dad brought me three distressed white shadow boxes he picked up at a yard sale for $0.25 each.  I wanted to put some Nautical Knots inside, but I didn't know exactly what materials to use until I came across these DOG TOYS at the Dollar Tree:


A little navy craft paint inside the shadow boxes and a little glue to hold the Dog Toys in place and here's what I have for my new home:




Pretty fun, huh?  Now, don't go telling everyone that "Heather hangs Dog Toys on display in her house!"  Haha!  Remember, they're Nautical Knots! (wink)
